SACRAMENTO – Four California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) members attended a video conference site representation class conducted by CSLEA Senior Counsel Andrea Perez on July 9, 2021.
The members work at CalPERS, the Department of Public Health and Department of Consumer Affairs. Each member took the time to learn more about their union, their contract with the state, and how to assist their colleagues with issues that arise with supervisors.
“It’s encouraging to see our members taking an active role in their union and therefore in their workplace,” said Perez. “This was a great group, which included some sworn members, so we can’t publicly show their faces. But we successfully completed basic site rep training and I thank each of them for attending.”
Taking a site representation class allows union members to learn more about CSLEA’s structure, to meet CSLEA attorneys, be informed about grievance practices and policies, and how to interact with supervisors. Once a member is officially appointed as a site representative, management understands and accepts their roles as intermediaries.
